• Pass the Violence Against Women Act

    As Connecticut’s attorney general, I saw firsthand how practically important and meaningful the Violence Against Women Act is to the thousands of victims of violence throughout the state.

Given the investment that fans make in their teams by purchasing tickets and merchandise and through public financing of stadiums, I believe any blackout is unfair.

  • The Buffett Rule

    I am proud to strongly support the Buffett Rule by cosponsoring the Paying a Fair Share Act of 2012.  This legislation would ensure that people with the highest income – including millionaires and billionaires – pay their fair share of taxes.
